Is it possible to generate a explorer file in linux?

Hi,
Is it possible to generate a explorer file in linux?
Actually in solaris we can able to take the explorer file,core file and vmcore file whenever server had a reboot due to any mal functions(kernel panic error) in the system.After server boots we can able to generate explorer file for further analysing the reboot causes...
Is there any way in linux to get these types of files for further analsis rather /var/log/messages??

Probably kdump/netdump may help you, please see:

Maybe, it depends on your distribution.

RedHat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) has had several crash dump tools: the older versions had "netdump" and "diskdump", the newest RHEL 5 has "kdump".

Search RedHat's documentation for more information:
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/

Other distributions may have similar features.

Either you can use KDUMP (if you use RHEL 5)
another way to check the log files (bootlog, syslog etc.)
